When the special session begins in Austin on April 17th, West Texas will still have someone representing District 84. Thursday, Representative Carl Isett appointed his wife Cheri Isett to replace him during the special session. Carl Isett called from Kuwait and said, "I've asked the person that I trust most in life to take on this responsibility. My wife Cheri not only knows many of the members of the legislature, and the leadership in Austin. She's been a practicing accountant both publicly and privately for almost twenty years."
Carl Isett was called to serve in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Cheri Isett said, "It is my commitment to him that this office of his will never miss a beat." Representative Delwin Jones and Senator Robert Duncan were both on hand to show their support for Carl and Cheri. They say her accounting experience will help as the legislature tries to revise the current tax structure in Texas.
